The following information comes from 21 years of experience and expertise. Important things to take into consideration when moving to the DFW area may include the following:

  • Prospective Buyers should obtain quotes for Home & Vehicle Insurance. Due to the population increase in DFW, including the number of claims filed for hail and storm damage, rates have gone up. It is important to make sure you can obtain and afford home and auto insurance coverage before you decide to make an offer. Do not assume what you're paying in another city or state that rates will be the same or coverage will be available.

  • Garages are very important to protect vehicles. How do you get access to your garage when parking? From the front of the house, rear, side? Make sure your vehicles fit and if you have to swing your car, is there enough room?

  • Lighting is important to take into consideration both for interior and exterior. 

  • HOA restrictions are important to know, especially if you plan to raise chickens, or have multiple pets. How much are the annual dues should factor into your monthly payments. Understand that HOA fees can change along with potential assessments. Learn before you buy the rules and guidelines. 

  • Call the School Districts to verify where children will attend schools. Go to school - directly to the school district before you buy to make sure schools aren't over capacity because some children may be bused outside their district. 

  • If you have a child who requires Special Needs, contact the school district for information before you buy. 

  • Inquire about utility bill costs and who are the sources who provide electricity, gas, water, and waste management.

  • Road construction continues to delay traffic. Do not depend on calculating milage distance on paper or via the Internet. 

  • If medical needs are important, find out in advance about local hospitals, physicians, and medical facilities before you make a decision to buy. 

  • Are there enough Police, Fire, and Emergency Services available in the areas where you considered moving?

  • Whether you buy new construction or pre-existing, it is imperative to get a Home Inspection. The Inspector works for the buyer, not the builder or the real estate agent. 

Finding the right Agent to consult with and guide you is crucial. Get to know them and the areas before you ask anyone to draw up a contract. Buying a home is so much more than closets, kitchen, living room, bedrooms, storage space, etc.

Hello Patricia - a lot of information-gathering goes into a property purchase decision.  An analysis of data plus things like "does my car fit" become issues - big and small.  The way they combine with other factors make the real estate industry fascinating. 

And sometimes a bit frustrating too.  It's not easy but participation in it can definitely be rewarding.  The importance of home is still highly prized.

Good morning, Michael Jacobs! There is so much more to buying a house than just the stats. Buying a home that fits encompasses so much more. There is nothing worse than having a very nice big truck or vehicle, but it doesn't fit inside the garage. HOA's most likely have restrictions on parking on the street or leaving a vehicle in the owner's driveway. 

Your comment fit right in with the content. Thank you, very much!

You mention so many things people do not even consider, on top of just finding a home to buy. All good advice as well. Buyers in the DFW area will be well served to give you a call for help.

Good morning! That's a great list of items for buyers to consider. As for the market statistics, the lengthening in months of service might mean a move to a more balanced market??

Enjoy your day!
